Exploring Columbus is not for weak of stomach. The 200-year old capital of Ohio is brimming with eateries, watering holes; and history, crafts, and gardens to compliment this cultural Mecca.
Start with appetizers and cocktails at M, whether you are a local resident making this hip, urban lounge a regular happy hour spot or a visitor, M is where the scene is. Local celebrities (mostly professional athletes) often frequent the establishment and one private booth is “reserved” for couples that may be celebrating an engagement.
A Cameron Mitchell restaurant, M is stocked with an excellent staff, including a notable mixologist and knowledgeable waiters. Try the signature cocktail for a tangy, fresh drink with some spice and compliment the experience with a Lobster Cone. Sweet, crunchy, sesame seed cones filled with fresh, lump lobster and garnished in caviar give a glimpse into the innovative menu items at M.
Upon exiting this subdued haunt at the base of a sky rise apartment building one may feel like they descended upon Park Ave., New York City. Not to worry, you’re still in the Ohio River Valley – this is Columbus.
